Purpose of Lifelong Learning: Analysis from a Single Participant Interview
Regmi, Kapil Dev
Online Submission
What should be goal of education in general? What type of education are we practicing in the name of lifelong learning? What perspective of lifelong learning is becoming more dominant? Should the education system of a nation fulfill the demand of the market or the demand of the society? In this short single participant interview research I have explored the issues associated with these questions. Four themes generated out of interview--economy and lifelong learning, knowledge discrimination, lifelong learning in Canada, and Education-Job mismatch--have been discussed in particular. The report concludes that: objective of lifelong learning shouldn't be limited to economic gain; knowledge shouldn't be discriminated on the basis of the value given by the market; lifelong learning policy must allow spaces for indigenous, traditional and other forms of informal knowledge that are often left unrecognized and neglected; and as both market and education are the parts of nation both of them should work towards the fulfillment of the demand of the nation. The interview transcript is appended.
